    Not even the little Apple sub forum they have going. No thanks I'll pass. Also, you will not find me bashing any other platforms or saying that iOS is the best either. Is it the best for me? Yes. For someone else, it may not be.
    Even on the Apple subforum there, you still get your posts deleted if you even hint at favoritism towards iOS. I've had a number of mine deleted when I clearly did nothing wrong except state I had an iPhone plus a BB which is now just being used as a mass storage device.

    *smh* that's just wrong to have your posts deleted like that. It's just total BS--that is why I will not go back there and post anymore. because your not brainwashed by bb, you get snubbed.

    I usually go just to get a laugh out of it anymore ... Maybe throw out a true fact or two but mostly for amusement now, the brainwashing over there is quite ridiculous ... It was why I decided to start this thread lol I wanted to see if we we're and while we love our devices immensely ... We aren't brainwashed yet lol

    Yea, I agree that we aren't. Being neutral and just expressing what device currently gives us what we need out of a phone at this point in time--there's nothing wrong in that. AND how many threads have we seen there comparing how bb is better than an iPhone or android

    Time and time again, il keep saying the same thing--it all depends on what you the user want/need out of your device. One is not better than another--it just works better for what you need !! I wish I could drill that into some peoples heads for god sakes !!

    I loved my BB for a number of years. Drug my feet kicking and screaming into the smartphone world about four years ago. I was content with my i830 and only being able to make and get calls. Didn't need one. Got my first BB and loved it. Then I fell out of love with it when I kept having Curves that would break and fall apart. Went through 5 in < 3 weeks, not to mention the freezing, the battery pulls, the lagging and the lack of apps and support. Enough was enough. When the BB no longer fit my needs, I moved on.

    One thing I can say for all of us iOS users here, I don't see the negativity or the hostility here that I see there. We all get along happily, offering advice and support when and where we can. If one of us decides to jump ship and go Android or WinMo, the hostility isn't there and that makes iMore a much more pleasant place to be. Plus the mods don't go around needlessly deleting posts because one of us has a differing opinion and doesn't have a shrine built for Steve Jobs in our living rooms.

    I couldn't agree more with you here, very well said Laura !!

    With all the bb's I've had, it was the S2 that I had thee most problems with, then until I had my 9650 on OS5 it ran well-it was when I decided to go to OS6 the mem leaks and batt pulls became tedious, which pushed me away from bb to the iPhone, along with the fact that I've always wanted an iPhone, so that just helped it along lol.

    I am a huge android fan. I am now using an iPhone. It works for almost everything I need it to do at the moment. I am not complete off of Android. I like the OS and the customization options. Just as i enjoy something's about IOS. I don't see the need to bash any product or Eco system. Most people that bash one or the other haven't even tried it yet.
